Stock Split

Stock Split
An event in which new shares of a company are issued to add to the existing shares in the market. The new shares are issued according to a ratio, say 4-for-1, and are credited automatically to the existing shareholders of the company in proportion to their shareholding. The price of the stock adjusts in the same ratio to reflect the change in the number of outstanding shares.
